  • Which snake do you think is more dangerous? Rattler or Puffy?

    Dingo DinkelmanDingo Dinkelman4 kuukautta sitten
    • Puffy for sure mate

      James FewellJames Fewell15 päivää sitten
    • The Puffy!!! Their aggressive disposition coupled with their cytotoxic venom is a lethal combination for those who are unlucky enough to threaten them!

  • Im no snake expert but i feel like if it CHOSE to be close to humans it will be JUST AS dangerous as any other snake in the venomous category. In other words some snakes just choose to retain their venom for when they have not a choice and are cornered to the wall so to speak.

  • If the species switched continents, the numbers would likely be similar to the current numbers. The lack of infrastructure and healthcare skews any evaluation based on deaths, anywhere in the world, but heavily in Africa, India, and other agrarian areas where farm machinery is used less often compared to hand tools and hands. Great video Dingo. The stones on you and your lovely wife, having four out at once 😱

  • All the species with the caterpillar locomotion are so fascinating to watch move. Of the species who move that way, is one noticeably quicker crawling than the others? Bc the puff seems to be pretty quick, atleast compared to a Gaboon or Rhino.

  • I think another major thing is that puff adders(and bitis in general) not only are more prone to strike, and strike faster, but they can strike in any direction at any time, and often give no warning. Whereas rattlesnakes can pretty much only (more or less) strike right in front of them, and usually are wound up in that sort of standing "S" position, facing straight at you, and you can gauge relatively easily from how far, and in what direction they can tag you. But I agree, I think the biggest thing is how willing puff assets are to strike(and how likely people are to encounter them compared to rattlesnakes, at least in North America.)

  • Black Diamond rattlesnake (C.o helleri), Mojave type A, Canebrake (neuro-toxin mixed locals), Neo-tropicals & EDB crazy yield just under King Cobra & Gabby. Also the Tiger Rattlesnake (Crotalus Tigris) is more toxic than the Black Mamba although have very small yields but toxin wise combines both Mojave types.

You show how bad a bite from these snakes can really be, and that's much appreciated. This is real education, something we unfortunately don't get enough of nowadays.

As for which snake is more dangerous? Which one don't you have access to anti-venom and proper medical support for?

  • The eastern diamondbacks we have here in Georgia get huge and they are really aggressive snakes. The latest info in the last few years is that they arent rattling much if even at all but will strike more often than not. Then again most bites are dry bites though.

    physaksphysaks4 kuukautta sitten
    • @XmenMagnetoAcolytes So is the Mojave more toxic or is the Cascabel more toxic, among these two rattlers? Which rattlesnake has the most punishing envenomation altogether (toxicity, and then toxicity plus yield together)?

      physaksphysaks3 kuukautta sitten
    • Yes and sometimes can kill a human in under under 20 minutes. Neurotoxins are the fastests acting toxins prominantly used by elapids. Black Diamonds (Crotalus Helleri) have mojave combo, Neo-Tropical Rattlers including Cascabel, the Canebrake, Mojave type A toxic wise and Eastern Diamondbacks yield wise. Tiger Rattlesnake is more toxic than Black Mamba although no where near as dangerous due to yield.

  • Talking about big animals in Africa. It made me think about the Sasquatch or bigfoot. I never heard of sightings from Africa? Do people report seeing the there? Ive never seen one so idk if they're real. I believe they exist for a few reasons. First the sightings, so many a couple % must be real. Dr Jeff meldrum, a foot expert says some of the footprints are from a real living being. There is also a guy thats an expert on dermal ridges (fingerprints on hands and feet) on humans and primates. these dermal ridges have been found on some casted prints from the start. He says they are real, kind of a cross between human and ape. No on was thinking about or looking for fingerprints back then... There are more reasons but these are the big ones. I'm not big into it but I'd love to know for sure. Dingo being a big animal expert, I'd love to know what he thinks and if there are sightings in Africa, what do the guys, the bushmen, people that still live with nature, what do they say?

  • I absolutely love the respect and devotion you have for your creatures. I live in the western United States and have been catching and photographing rattlesnakes for years. I also worked in Healthcare so I thought I should add the following three considerations: 1) on average the hospital bill is $150,000.00, even with great insurance out of pocket expense is 5-10K. 2) last month near my house a jogger was bit by a southern pacific rattlesnake while jogging. The snake bit through his running shoe, one fang penetrated his skin, his foot looked like a football. Because he immediately had tingling in his lips and difficulty swallowing a helicopter was sent to pick him up. His hospital bill was $450,000. 3) if your insurance determines you were "harassing" the snake you will end up paying the whole bill.
